Quick and Easy Black Beans

2 Cans Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 T olive oil

2/3 C diced onion

2-3 garlic cloves, minced

2/3 C chicken broth (or water)

1/4 t cumin

1/4 t coriander

1/4 t oregano
1/2 t salt

1/4 t pepper

juice of 1 lime

In a saucepan on the stove, heat the olive oil to med-high heat. Saute onions for about 3 minutes or until they just start to become translucent. Add garlic and saute abut 30 seconds more. Add beans, broth, and remaining seasonings and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer and simmer for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. When they are done cooking, remove from heat and add in a few squeezes of lime juice. Then use the back of a spoon or rubber spatula so smoosh some of the beans.  If you want a more soupy consistency, just add a little more broth.
Serve as a side dish, or on top or rice.  You can also put it in tacos.
